Spammer guy gets $11 mill judgement against Spamhaus, no one cares

David Linhardt is funny. Here’s one of his emails that he sent a couple of years ago to the Spamhaus folks:

…You're not interested in the truth. You just get your rocks off by illegally interfering with legitimate business and illegally restraining trade. It must be a real power rush for you.

I'm sorry God gave you such a small penis.

(Surprisingly, as a spammer, he passed up a natural opportunity to pitch a solution to this alleged size problem.)

Anyway, apart from the sophomoric humor value in his emails, Dave did something else funny: He sued Spamhaus. And won. But no one really cares, because it was a default judgment in Illinois and SpamHaus is in the UK (at one time, housed on a houseboat on the Thames river).

David can join others who claim Spamhaus is a secret group that “tightly controls free speech on the Internet”. There’s not much else he can do, apart from try and sue in the UK — and I sincerely doubt that he will make that mistake.
